Mugsy

Mugsy

All foster families know that sometimes you get those extra special foster dogs that you have an amazing connection with and you wonder, how am I ever going to let this baby go?
Then an application comes in from those extra special adopters and you just know that this family will give my foster dog an amazing life. You put your heartbreak to the side just because you love these foster dogs so much and want nothing but the best for them.
Mugsy came into our home on 9/1/19. She had lived her life as a farm dog. Mugsy was determined, scrappy and had that never-give-up attitude. Even though the younger foster dogs exhausted her, she would never be the first one to end a play session. Mugsy was a master escape artist. She is the only Bulldog we have ever known that could climb out of a kennel.
She was also one of the sweetest, funniest and snuggliest fosters we have ever had. She had the most soulful brown eyes.
Mugsy had the most amazing, loving connection with her foster dad, Scott. They were like two peas in a pod. Mugsy loved nothing more than when Scott would pick her up and she trusted him so much, she would just fall asleep on his shoulder. Mugsy was friends with everyone she met.
We received an application from Margaret and we learned she had an interest in Mugsy and her foster sister, Hazel Jo (now known as Daisy).
Margaret and her family already had adopted two beautiful girls through Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue and wanted to add to their family.
The day they came to meet our foster girls there was an instant connection. They ended up adding three girls to their family that day.
Margaret and her daughter are amazing people and we could not have picked a better family for our sweet Mugsy.
Mugsy was never a healthy dog. She had issues from being outside most of her life, but Margaret did not hesitate in adopting her. She loved Mugsy no matter what and gave her an amazing life for almost two years.
Last week, Mugsy lost her battle with severe heart and lung issues. Margaret spared no expense for her girl and got her the best of care to keep her comfortable.
We are all absolutely heartbroken. Mugsy was adopted almost two years ago, but she was still had a huge part of our hearts and Margaret was amazing by keeping us updated and allowing us to stay in Mugsy’s life.
Please keep Margaret and her family in your thoughts and prayers. We are so thankful that we got to be part of Mugsy’s life, even for a short time. We are so thankful for people like Margaret, who has one of the biggest, most caring hearts I know.

Mugsy and Hazel Jo (now known as Daisy) are officially sisters. Today they both headed off on a big car adventure with their new Mom and skin sister.

There are two very special things about this family and adoption. One is that not too long ago they made this same journey and adopted two precious girls from LSBCR. These two girls are now also officially new sisters for Mugsy and Daisy. The second thing I will leave for a surprise that one of our other foster families will reveal 😉.

Hazel Jo (Daisy) is such an affectionate girl and just loves attention. She still has many things to learn but her new family will work with her so the amazing girl she is can come out. We are both going to miss those sweet hugs and entertaining toy time.

Miss Mugsy can only be described as special. She stole both of our hearts the minute we met her and she soon became foster dads little girl. Mugsy has the sweetest eyes and most innocent face which made it so hard to be mad at her when she performed her Houdini escape attempts. She would just look up at you and wiggle that little tail and all will be forgotten. You have taken a big piece of foster dads heart with you Mugsy girl.

Congratulations on getting the life both of you sweet babies deserve and also to this amazing family who is continuously willing to take in these amazing bullies and give them a second chance.

Some of you might not have seen me before today, unless you came out to Bright Star Veterinary Clinic. While I’ve been known as Mugsy my whole life, my foster mom and dad think the name “Lizzy” fits my personality. I don’t know.. I think I kind of like it.

Let me tell you a little more about me. I am just a little girl and am 5 years old. My foster mom and dad say I am as sweet as can be. I lived on a farm for most of my life, helping to take care of everything. I love being outdoors because that’s where I spent all my time. Due to unfortunate events, my family could no longer take care of me so they thought it was best to let me join rescue.

Some may say I may not look like the typical Bulldog, but trust me, I sure act like one. I am getting along great with my foster sister and I have to be constantly moving. Anyways, I gotta go for now. It’s that constant moving thing I was telling you about, but I’ll check in again later.

Bye for now…. Hey, wait for me!

9/10/19 Update:  I’ve been in my foster home for a week now and boy, do I love it. I have my own bed, toys and delicious food. My foster parents told me to make a list of what I would be wanting in my furever home so I’ve thought about it and here goes.

1. A comfy lap. Do you have a lap that needs to be filled? I will gladly fill it.

2. Toys. I have figured out what toys are for and decided I really like them.

3. A backyard. I just love hanging outside. Sometimes my foster parents have to make me come in because I just love to lay in the sun.

4. Food. This stuff is amazing. Foster mom makes me all this delicious food and I can’t get enough of it.

5. Love. I LOVE EVERYONE.

So there you have it. My list isn’t long yet, but honestly it doesn’t take much to make me happy. All you really have to do is look at me and my tail starts doing helicopters. I enjoy short play sessions with my foster sister, but honestly,I wouldn’t even mind being your one and only. So if you’re looking for a pocket-sized Bulldog who loves everyone and everything, then look no further. Maybe we can be a match!

9/16/19 Update:  I have settled into my foster home. My foster parents say I’m the sweetest girl with the biggest, beautiful brown eyes. I know where to go when it’s time for food and I know where to go when it’s time for potty. I do love to lay in the sun so the foster parents are always on my back to come inside. I really do love being outside.

Do you need a friend to help you in the garden, snuggle with you and love you forever? Look no further, people, because I may be your perfect match!

9/30/19 Update:   Sweet little foster girl Mugsy isn’t your typical diva Bulldog girl. She is so easy going. All she wants is a family of her own. When you look at her or say her name, her little tail starts going 100 miles per hour.
